Day 1 - Sunday: Arrive at Grønolen Mountain Farm
Delicious 3 course dinner and information about the program.
Day 2 - Monday: Hike to the top of Mugnetind (1739 m)
This is a lovely trip, both because the tour itself is fantastic, but also because it is a nice first-day trip to get to know each other.
We begin with a gentle climb along the river Mugna. After a short brake at Mugnebøtt, we start the somewhat more demanding climb towards the summit. When we arrive at the relatively flat top, we are rewarded with a stunning view of the valley bellow and the mountains in Jotunheimen National Park. We choose a different route on our way down and end the trip with dipping our feet in the cold river.
4-5 hours, medium / easy trip
Day 3 - Tuesday: Hike across the mountain, Knutshøe (1517 m)
Knutshøe is one of our finest mountain hikes. It is varied and exciting. We start with a short walk on the marked path from the parking, before we reach the ascent to the mountain. Some parties are a bit narrow and people sensitive to heights should mentally prepare for a challenge. Fortunately, you are looked after by experienced local guides. The tour follows the entire mountain ridge and returns along the foot of the mountain, to the south.
5-7 hours, medium / demanding trip.
Day 4 - Wednesday: Hike to the top of Synshødn (1477 m) and Heimre Fagerdalshøe (1512 m) followed by lunch at a mountain summer farm
From the mountain summer farm Hålistølen we start by following a sandy moraine. It’s a little steep in the beginning. We make short breaks and enjoy the view. Eventually, we reach the summit and enjoy splendid views towards Lake Bygdin with the peaks in Jotunheimen National Park in a distance. We descend, using the so-called ‘Track of the Germans’ towards our mountain summer farm, where we are treated with a traditional dish of sour cream porridge and cured meat.
3-4 hours hike, medium level
Instead of the hike, you can join a guided tour in Synshorn Via Ferrata, followed by lunch at a mountain summer farm with rest of the group. Additional cost for the Via Ferrata is NOK 890.- (pay at the spot).
Day 5 - Thursday: Hike Jostigen and the Besseggen ridge
Jostigen is an old shortcut to get to the Besseggen ridge.
We drive to Gjendesheim and walk along the Gjende lake. Then we start our climb towards the ridge. We walk on a narrow path and rise 400 meters before we reach the main path along the Besseggen ridge. All the way we can enjoy the spectacular view of Jotunheimen National Park and the Gjende Lake. The last part of the tour follows the main path to the top of the ridge (1743 m) and back to Gjendesheim. You will never forget the feeling when you arrive at the Besseggen ridge, with load of people, after climbing Jostigen almost without seeing anyone at all.
5-6 hours, medium / demanding trip
Day 6 - Friday: Breakfast and departure
Departure after a delicious breakfast.
